Dodgers Fan Chooses Taser Over Tigers

The Detroit Tigers hear the footsteps of the Los Angeles Dodgers. And they're quaking in their boots.

According to the Kansas City Star, the Saginaw (Michigan) police used tasers in an attempt to get a Los Angeles Dodgers fan to remove his Dodgers cap:

Charles Littleton, 22, was defiant, even after being Tasered by police, when he resisted efforts to remove him from a Saginaw, Mich., City Council meeting. He said he had to stand up for his right to wear his Los Angeles Dodgers baseball cap, despite a rule banning hats for men inside. “It means more than just a hat,” he said. “It’s like my crown. It’s like asking a king to remove his crown.”

Saginaw is a short 100 miles away from Detroit. What, they want him to be a Tigers fan? Ugh.

Cora, you're looking to get tasered yourself.

Or does "fight the power" describe your batting philosophy (1 HR last year, and it was a cheapie)? Ha ha ha
